India rallied with handful contributions from the lower order and eventually earned a draw. Apart from batting in the first innings, Tendulkar rolled his arms over for one over, that was taken for ten runs. He did not get to bat again in the Test match. Both the teams had two debutants each with Tendulkar and Younis going on have illustrious careers. Indian fast bowler Salil Ankola never played a Test for India again and went on to pursue a successful career in acting. Pakistan’s other debutant, Shahid Saeed, too could not find a place in the Test team after this match, but went on to play ten ODIs for Pakistan.

The eventual Man of the Match, Kapil Dev, was playing his 100th Test match, and he became the first fast bowler to reach the milestone and he also crossed the 350-wicket mark during the match, making him only the fourth bowler at that time to breach the 350-barrier.
